Glad it helped ya! And I agree, it's definitely nice to be able to follow a thread and learn some things.
Next time, I'll try to be super-kewl and post up some PICS of what I am talking about. I think that would've made a big difference too.

OK I have a question on jumping the two wires, so i have the wires jumped, my FI light flashes once waits for a sec or two flashes again. if i hade a code 3 would it flash 3 times fast then repeat? and my two wires that have female clip on one is green and the other is brown ish when i jump the FI flashes. whoever put the under tail on was a IDIOT. i have but connectors from hell. ive owned the bike for 2 yrs. now. Was good until i went to the mountains on my bike the other day. now it cuts out now and again, with the FI light comes on then goes out. PLEASE help. Thanks Garry in Sacramento.

There's a big connector inside the fairing about where the left front blinker is. That's a bitchy one, i'd check that too. Especialy since you write it has been down on the left side... It's known to take damage that way...

Get it exposed, have the bike running 'n jerk it about, see what happens...

And then in reaction to other things i've spotted in previous posts:

On top of the ram air inlet, that's a BARO correction sensor. IAT is on top of the air filter box.

If the bank angle sensor is triggered, you need an ignition key off/on to restart it again i think, but not completely sure on that.

This thread is exactly why I've been going over every new bike I've ever owned in the last 45 yrs. with elec. tape or nylon ties ASAP. I can't recall ever having an electrical problem in all that time that was related to chafing. Any place that was going to move could usually be guarded with a small piece of hose etc.

Wanted to say thanks for this thread. I was having the same issue, but... I didn't find the problem in the tail. The problem I was having was a group of wires on the front left side of the bike had come loose and was rubbing against the spinning fan behind the radiator. It almost cut 4 of the 8 wires that were there. Fixed her all up, and so far so good.

Thanks again for the info, just wanted help anyone else out that may have a problem.
